What to Expect

Course Structure

365体育备用网址While courses will run on Eastern Standard Time (EST), the program is designed for flexibility to accommodate students based in different time zones. All live sessions and activity periods will be recorded and posted on Canvas for students who are not able to participate in the course synchronously. Each day of instruction (Monday-Friday) starts with a daily briefing to prepare students for the day. Students then attend a two-hour live video session with their lead instructor, followed by a two-hour guided group activity. Daily self-paced projects, readings and viewings are assigned to enhance understanding of the course content, creation of articles, peer review and more. Students are also invited to visit The Editors’ Room for assistance and specialized programming that promotes community-building and social activity. On the last day of instruction, students present their final projects and participate in a wrap-up session with faculty and peers.

World-Class Faculty

Summer Academy Online students are taught by award-winning Times journalists and industry experts carefully selected by The School of The New York Times for their professional expertise, their interest in the subject matter and their ability to teach and inspire our students. Throughout the program, guest speakers from top institutions are also invited to join live teaching sessions and interact directly with the students. During self-paced study modules, students have access to a team of faculty who guide them through activities, answer questions and offer feedback. After the course concludes, each student receives an evaluation from faculty summarizing their growth and progress as well as feedback on their final project.

Intellectually Curious Peers

Summer Academy Online provides students with a comfortable and collaborative environment in which to learn, investigate and explore while also building meaningful relationships with friends, mentors and instructors who share their passions and interests. Creating these social peer-to-peer experiences is integral to the pre-college learning experience. Throughout the program, students have many opportunities to meet and get to know their classmates and students in other courses within their term. Beyond the virtual classroom, students will also be able to strengthen their connections through participation in program-hosted events and The Editors’ Room virtual lounge.
